About Asia Focus

  • In response to the great need for foresight about Asia, IFTF has launched the Asia Focus Program. Asia Focus research topics are large-scale, under-explored areas from which unexpected futures will emerge. It is part of IFTF's flagship program, the Ten-Year Forecast Program, which provides a broad scan of the environment and is a leading source of foresight for a vangard of business, government, and nonprofit organizations.

I remember those books...They tought me how to reply to "How are you?" ---it's always, always, the classical phrase "I'm fine, thank you. And you?" we loved it, for they make you seem smart to English speakers, we hated it, because the answer to the reply may be long and confusing...and we wouldn't know what to do and say next...hahahaha
